2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. Last month, not only did the church need to get new tags for the bus but Stacy and I had to tag our vehicles as well. Now, you would’ve thought that I would have exercised the “Killing Two Birds with One Stone” approach with this but I suppose I am a glutton for punishment! I must enjoy wasting my life away standing in lines. I went to the Butler County Courthouse one week to tag the church bus and then went back the very next week to tag our vehicles.

On my first visit I found myself in line waiting for two hours. And the whole time I sat there, I kept kicking myself for not bringing my other documents to tag my personal vehicles.

The next week I arrived to the court house to find myself in the worse line I had ever been in waiting to tag vehicles. I stood in line on that day for two and a half hours. And I kept thinking how crazy it was that I was standing in this extremely long line just to pay money for a couple of stickers.

Someone needs to do a study and find out how much time Americans spend in line waiting to tag their vehicles each year. I mean, come on, we put a man on the moon, invented cell phones, the internet, and the sport of wrestling. It just seems to me that there has to be a way to tag your vehicles without standing for hours in line. How long does it take to type a few buttons on the computer. And as I think these things, I am reminded that I could have avoided all of this waiting and stress by simply going on the internet a month earlier and tagged the vehicles earlier, thus avoiding wasting 4 and a half hours of my life standing in lines. I just I hate waiting and anything. I don’t like waiting for food when I’m hungry. I don’t like waiting in traffic. I don’t like waiting in the store. I don’t like waiting for the Kids and Stacy to get ready. I don’t like waiting for green eggs and ham. I don’t like waiting Sam I Am.

God's idea of timing is often different from our own. The truth is that God's character, and the lessons he wants to teach us about waiting.

VIDEO: Waiting With God

Let me share with you a personal story that started this sermon on Waiting With God for me.

Illustration: Last Sunday afternoon we were hit with a major hail storm weren’t we? Stacy and I were on our way home from El Dorado when we were hit. I can’t really remember seeing that much come down that fast ever before. Driving in it was almost like a Hollywood film except we were in it.

Illustration: We got home safe and I was just simply amazed at all of the hail on the ground. Once it stopped I went outside to check things out. I went to our koi pond and had to readjust some of the rocks that had been pelted by the hail and I noticed my largest and oldest koi laying outside of the pond lifeless with mud stuck all over him.
